Off the Wall

Vans; the shoe of choice for cute skater boys since 1966. In my high school days Vans were the only acceptable shoe for a skater groupie like myself. Its been years since I’ve sat on the edge of a bowl and been impressed by a boy popping an ollie but just yesterday I purchased my first pair of Vans since like 2007. Not because I plan to go troll some skate parks for hotties, but because I keep seeing them every where and have that ‘my wardrobe will never be complete with out them’ feeling for like at least a month now. I don’t like to think I’m a trend slave, if I see 50 girls wearing the same t shirt I don’t feel the need to go out and by it… BUT! I have seen like 500 girls in vans looking ridiculously cool and comfy… AT THE SAME TIME! Now that I am a student and can no longer wear high heels while I sit at my desk for 8 hours a day I actually need comfy shoes that I can, you know walk in. So I have purchased a brand new pair of Vans, which you can see below there are also some pictures of other girls and boys looking cool in their Vans, its basically its one big Vans appreciation party down there. Enjoy!

Parklife 2012

PARKLIFE IS THIS WEEKEND! OMG! GTFO!  Parklife is the first of the summer music festivals and this year the line is epic; Justice, Passion Pit, Nero, Parachute Youth and of couse my favourite… FLUME! If you don’t know FLUME, he is a rad DJ from Sydney and you need to check him out right now! Usually, Parklife is the first chance to dust of your denim cut offs and everyone is running about faking tanning the crap out of themselves, but this year its going to be like 16 and raining so I’ve had to rethink my outfit choices. First up is what I like to call the ‘I kinda wanna pick up today’ because its a little sexier the number two, which is the super sensible and probs a lot more comfy option.

Metallic knits seem to be this winters hot ticket item. They’ve been popping up all over the place and I am so keen to try this style. The cutest ones I have seen so far are the MINKPINK Foiled Plans Jumper and the Nude Lucy Metallic Jumper in Gold Lurex. I’d wear it with black jeans, a khaki jacket and some SMALL gold accessories. I think the key to look is dressing it down for day time with jeans and simple colours and fabrics. I wouldn’t go to wild with any prints, but that’s just me; if you want to rock it with floral leggings then all the power to you!
